When To Fertilize?

Cactus Joe’s suggests the following fertilization schedule. We like to reference holidays because they are easier to remember:

St. Patrick’s Day

Memorial Day

Labor Day

Columbus Day

We do not recommend fertilizing during the intense heat of the summer, or during the cold winter months (most cacti are dormant when the temperatures fall below 50ºF.)

Suggested Vitamins and Fertilizers:

All Purpose Miracle Grow

B-1 Vitamin (for transplanting)

Bone Meal

Cactus Juice

Dip N Grow


SUPERthrive (We really like this as an all around plant tonic.)

Cactus Joe’s Las Vegas Nursery does not sell fertilizers or vitamins.

Most of the products listed above can be purchased at your local home and garden supply store.
